4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle with a bottle date of 16 July, 2013. As my cellar slowly starts to dwindle away, I canít recall where I got some of them. Anyhow... I killed this bomber by myself and I donít feel guilty about it. Used motor oil with a small tan head. Aroma is charred malt, roasted coffee bean and earthy, premium dark chocolate.
This is the body I look for in an imperial stout! Thick and chewy with the oat flakes adding that beautiful thickness. Flavor has big roast and again that premium chocolate, burned coffee with some light dark fruit hints. Secondary flavor of anise and ash. Smooth, soft carbonation. No alcohol to be found after a year sitting. I believe I have covered the entire Yeti family and if GD decides to brew another variant, I will not complain at all. Top tier like the rest of the yeti series.

10 oz pour at Tylerís Apex. Good aroma. Sweet roasty. Chocolate, coffee, the dairy thing I get from oats. Dark orangy brown color. Good initial head faded quickly. Little to no lace. Sweet bitter flavor. Thick body creamy viscous oily mouthfeel. Sweet bitter finish. Good as always with the yeti. Oat gives a extra chewiness. Flavor best part for me. But itís all good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a thick, frothy tan head. Roasted oat aroma with raisins, smoked malt, Milk chocolate as well. Amazing flavor. Probably the best version of the Yeti I have had. Milk chocolate flavor with roasted oats and malt in the background. Unreal balance. Not overpowering but still punching you in the face. I love the Yeti line but this is the best.
